Any inexpensive attachment lens is likely to add some distortion to your image. If you have the 143x already, then I suppose you are stuck with what it is. If you are just looking for a inexpensive projector that is short throw and a cheap way to convert, then I wouldn't go that route, but would get a short throw projector instead.
Some people also make/buy a inexpensive mirror and bounce the image off the mirror to the screen. This increases your throw distance in a smaller room.
